OPERATION
BATTERY PROTECTION
COLD WEATHER OPERATION
The circuitry protects the battery pack from
extreme temperature, over discharge, and
over-charge. To protect the battery from
damage and prolong its life, the circuitry
will turn off the battery pack if it becomes
overloaded or if the temperature becomes
too high during use. This may happen in
extremely high torque, binding, and stalling
situations. The battery pack will begin normal
operation when it cools down.
When the battery pack is very cold, it may
“pulse” for the first minute of use to warm
itself. Put the battery pack on a tool and use
the tool in a light application. After about a
minute, the battery pack will have warmed
itself and will operate normally.
NOTE: A significantly reduced run time after
fully charging the battery pack indicates that
the batteries are near the end of their usable
life and must be replaced.
WHEN TO CHARGE THE
BATTERY PACK
It is not necessary to run down the battery
pack charge before recharging. The LithiumIon battery can be charged at any time and
will not develop a “memory” when charged
after only a partial discharge.
page 9
Remove the battery pack from the tool when
convenient for you and your job. “Top off”
the battery pack charge by charging it for a
time before starting a big job or long period
of use.
FIG. 2
Due to Lithium-Ion fade-free properties,
the only time it is necessary to charge the
Lithium-Ion battery pack is when the pack
has reached the end of its charge. To signal
the end of charge, power to the tool will drop
quickly. Charge the battery pack as needed.
HOW TO CHARGE THE BATTERY
PACK
NOTE: This Lithium-Ion battery pack is
shipped partially charged. Before using it the
first time, fully charge the battery pack.
